% back romney. and governor romney slammed president obama's foreign policies this morning during a speech at the virginia military institute. he says the president is leading from behind instead of using the country's power to shake history. romney also portrayed the administration as weak for changing its explanation for last month's deadly attacks on the us consulate in libya. >> this latest assault cannot be blamed on a reprehensible resolving israel. no, the administration has finally conceded these attacks were the deliberate work of terrorists. >> the obama campaign is dismillsing romney's speech -- is -- is dismissioning romney's speech -- dismissing romney's speech,. >>> the president is arriving here in the bay area. he's in kern county right now to dedicate a memorial to the late leader cesar chavez. he's speaking there. you can barely see him. he's greeting some supporters there. we'll have a report shortly from san francisco on the president's here to the bay area. >>> early voting begins in california today. if you want to vote early, just head to your county electio
embraced and will continue to embrace, and the road of optimism and pro-growth policies to get america back to work. that's the choice. >> isn't the problem for mitt romney that people obviously believe, which was the mantra, that the democratic party tried to define that the obama campaign tried to define, that is not a guy for the 100%? this is a guy who frankly favors the wealthy. people like him. and that he doesn't get the cares and worries of the average american? >> i think that's the divide and conquer mentality. mitt romney cares deeply about the american people. he cares deeply about the future of this country and our kids and grandkids. that's way can bring forward in this debate because it will be unfiltered. it won't be split and cut by the media or by whoever is slicing and diesing any recorded messages that have been done before. this is an unfiltered opportunity for governor romney to lay out his optimistic and upbeat plan for the american people and for our great country. that's why i'm so excited about tomorrow night. >> let me ask you about something dave gertz wrote in "
their attacks on president obama's policies are simply wrong. their views about the role of government in the economy simply don't hold up under the slightest scrutiny. and third, i tried to show how our current politician and even the individual mandate for health insurance do, in fact, fit neatly into the vision of the nation as the founding fathers and our constitution. the result quite frankly was to convince not a single member of their camp. perhaps that's not surprising given the rather fractured and polarized nature of our politics but it was troubling to me. facts simply bounced off of them. in the beckian world view, fear runs rough shod over truth and absurd claims about the role of government pass off as an ideological construct. whohow do you debate that? thank goodness for the first amendment. that's my view. you'd spot movement, gather intelligence with minimal collateral damage. but rather than neutralizing enemies in their sleep you'd be targeting stocks to trade. well, that's what trade architect's he
contrast to president obama, but how much space is there on policy? and is this an official break from the bush doctrine? also, the biden ryan debate in kentucky. will the vice president avoid any quote bumps in the road as the president described his own performance over the weekend and how will paul ryan perform on the biggest stage of his career. plus, you say tomato. i say electoral. find out how some trade decisions could affect the election in some key states. good morning, it's monday, october 8th, 2012. i'm chuck todd. i know some of you are celebrating as if this is some federal holiday. there is no day off when it's 29 days until the november election. if mitt romney is going to be president of the united states, then next week, iowa and ohio will be coin flip races. we're seeing a more confidence mitt romney on the trail. >> we had a little debate earlier this week and i enjoyed myself. you had the chance to hear his answers or non answers. now, of course, days later, we're hearing his excuses. >> but while the romney campaign body language has changed, both are anxiously aw
in the last four years; that there's no direction to obama's foreign policy; that we have had no successes oversees. it has just been gloom. just like he says about the economy, we haven't created any jobs, the economy has just gotten worse under obama. he painted the same equally untrue picture of our foreign policy. here he is for example taking a pot shot at the word hope. >> romney: i know the president hoped for a safer freer and more prosperous middle east. i share this hope. but hope is not a strategy. we can't support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. >> bill: our words are not backed up by deeds. hum. maybe he should ask osama bin laden about that one. what do you think mitt? >> or maybe ask gadhafi. >> bill: yes. and then here is a typical totally empty-headed hollow republican mark. >> romney: i believe that if america doesn't lead others will. others who don't share our interests and our values, and the world would grow darker for our friends, and fours. >> bill: profound. profound mitt. jesus chris
and said the middle class has been buried by president obama's policies. then democrats responded by saying the middle class has been punished by the republican policies that crashed the economy under george w. bush. both campaigns hope swing voters in virginia will be watching the debate closely tomorrow night. northern virginia bureau chief julie carey talked to voters about why tomorrow night's performances will or won't influence their decisions. >> reporter: at the loudoun county election office, not all voters are waiting to cast their ballot. nearly 700 loudoun county residents have already completed their inperson absentee ballots. even those who made a choice say they will be watching the debate intently. this man who voted for mitt romney hopes the republican nominee can use the debate to win over swing voters. >> i hope that he'll take a strong stand on issues like immigration and the debt crisis. i mean, just make, explain things clearly. >> reporter: this voter who has already cast a ballot for barack obama wants the president to be aggressive in his debate approach. >> i'm hop
obama. i think president obama's policies and his political vision are fundamentally that of french democrats, rather like francois hollande. i think mitt romney's are a traditional conservative republican. i thought during the debate he sounded actually, he echoed themes that you would associate with dwight eisenhower. so i think this is a great debate to be joined politically. i think that romney is raising real risk but there are people on the left who would like to see a stronger centralized government, not just as a safety net but all of these elements and you can see what the problems are. as margaret thatcher once said, the problem with socialism that sooner or later you run out of other people's money. melissa: right. absolutely. professor, thanks for coming on. have a great weekend. >> you too. melissa: so here's the question of the day, will president obama get a bump in the polls next week because of today's jobs report? we want to hear what you think. like us on facebook at facebook.com/melissafrancisfox or follow me on twitter at melissaafrancis. >>> frustration over a
middle class is hurting? the policies that barack obama is imposing on the united states haven't worked anywhere in the world they have ever been tried. never. >> bret: florida senator marco rubio and former president bill clinton two big campaigners for both sides welcome campaigners. back with the panel. jeff, you listen to them on the stump. those campaigns have to like when they're out in battleground states. >> which is why they sent them out there. president clinton, the chicago headquarters of the obama campaign would like to have president clinton out there more. he has other things on the schedule. not a coincident he is in new hampshire today. he will spend time in florida i'm told. ness as well. places where the economy still needs, people need to be convinced that the economy is doing better. senator rubio, he is campaigning aggressively, but not in florida oddly. he spends most time around the country. a little bit interesting. doing his own work at the same time. >> bret: is this debate as turning point, a point? >> big moment. you can't have an event watched by 50 million
policy to do whatever it takes to see to it that obama only serves one term. but underlines that? screw the country we are going to do whatever we can to get this black man -- we are going to do whatever we can to get this black man out of here. >> it's not necessarily racist -- >> it is a racist thing. >> that was gordon from sesame street. >> by the way speaking of celebrities turning sour, what the hell happened to david letterman? i remember -- she knows. i remember the days he was actually like really, really funny. now he's like one of those guys who even though there's a dozen empty urinals he still walks right up to you and starts telling you all of their opinions and their kind of creepy and disturbing. ladies, take my word for it. okay. [laughter] but seriously, he's kind of turned into like the verbal equivalent of some one that sends an e-mail and all caps. isakson all caps. on may 15th, she was interviewing abc news anchor brian williams, note how visibly uncomfortable even williams becomes as letterman raises the antenna of his in the visible helmet and begins communicatin
. i think what we're seeing is the unraveling of the obama foreign policy. overseas we have people attac attacking our embassy. the muslim brotherhood has come power in egypt. our friends in israel have been set adrift. we have serious problems. the obama response to these events raised more questions. governor romney believes in a strong foreign policy and why you fight so hard to reverse cut to defense budget which are due to take place under this president in the new year. >> bret: foreign policy, different debate. probably not tonight. eric, thank you so much for the time. >> thank you. >> bret: okay. don't forget tonight's text to vote question. what is most memorable debate moment? we have four to choose from. text sr1 to 36288 for ronald reagan to president carter in 1980. there you go again. about the democratic choices on medicare. text sr2 for senator lloyd benson to dan quayle in 1988 he knew jack kennedy and you're no jack kennedy. sr3, al gore audible sigh in 2000. sr4 for gerald ford answer in 1976 that there is no soviet domination of eastern europe. results later. n
the obama administration on foreign policy yesterday. during a speech in virginia he claimed the risk of conflict in the middle east is higher now than it was when president obama took office. he urged a more aggressive u.s. role in the syrian civil war. >>> meantime, president obama campaigning on the west coast sounded an urgent note in his appeal to voter. he told supporters in san francisco they must be almost obsessive in getting out the vote. the president and mitt romney returned to the crucial state of ohio later today to campaign in that critical state. >>> first lady michelle obama is sharing a bit what goes on behind the closed dufrz the white house. in a "nightline" interview she told cynthia mcfadden she steers clear of trying to influence her husband's approximately sees instead sticking to causes like fighting childhood obesity. mrs. obama talked about how comfortable the president is around women. >> this is one of the things i love about barack, he is so used to having strong women in his life. you know, it's odd. i tell him that this is somehow, you know, god keeping

on foreign policy. generally speaking, it's been one of the strong suits of president obama, given the past developments versus recent developments. >> eric: yeah, i'm not sure it was so -- i don't know. it was okay. it was good. he hit on all the point he is needed to make. he had to do it. something people said, president obama has an ad out today saying he is weak on foreign policy, a wimp. amateurish. he wasn't amateurish. he showed some poise. hope is not a strategy was a great line. everybody will pick it up and they should run with it. he talked about cutting off aid to egypt, which is on a lot of people's minds. if you don't get your act together, we may cut off aid. he needed to do that. he showed presidential material. as far as exciting, it wasn't very exciting. so what? he did what he had to do. >> kimberly: you brought up the aid to egypt, some consider a controversial position. strong message about the type of leadership from romney should he be elected. dana, i want to ask your opinion. >> in egypt, i'll use our influence, including clear condition on our aid to urge the new
policy credibility, the obama camp is comparing mitt romney to chevy chase and our most recent poll shows voters give the president a 7-point edge on world affairs. is a challenger, any challenger, be it mitt romney or anyone else, obliged to do this, obliged to become the commander in chief like more a moment and give a foreign policy speech right before the election? >> yes. mitt romney has been aggressively pursuing the foreign policy area because he thinks the president is vulnerable. yes, the president did manage to kill osama bin laden on his watch, but in certain other areas the romney folks if you listen to all of the national security advisers, the foreign policy advisers, they think the president is very vulnerable, especially the notion of leading from behind. they say a romney administration would not lead from behind but rather lead from out front, and they're going to go after the president aggressively. you will see this in the course of romney's address which has been very carefully prepared and carefully written and you certain saw to a certain degree when romney did his

is dead. i think romney will try to lay out the failures of obama's policy and what he would do instead including not cutting the military. i think that issue you is underestimated. we cut the military a lot in the last two or three years, certainly stopped its growth and now telling sergeants who have been in 8-10 years hey, you know what, you have done a great job but we don't really need you, do your best in the civilian work force. really? if the world we he live in now we want to reduce the army and marine corps and don't want to procure new weapons? a low percentage of our gross national product and president obama is determined to cut it. foreign policy and defense policy could be a bigger issue than people expect in the final months of election. >> geraldo: is there still an appetite for an aggressive foreign policy for the military to be projected in the way that mitt romney suggests it should be? i sense great that failures teague out there. what is why there is not a lot of pressure on the president to intervene in syria for example where the blood is flowing in the streets.
of presidential character. >> the obama campaign said this will be romney's seventh speech on foreign policy. >>> venezuelan president hugo chavez gets to keep his job for another seven years, but his re-election came in the slimmest margin ever in his nearly 14 years in power. he won just 54% of the vote. actor danny glover, a longtime supporter of chavez, was on hand for a day of heavy voter turnout. chavez's opponent, a former state governor, accused him of using the oil to his advantage. he told backers the revolution has triumphed and that supporters were voting for socialism. >>> well, talk about wedding crashers. in philadelphia, police had to break up a brawl involving almost 100 guests from two separate wedding parties. one man died of a heart attack and several people were injured, and it was all captured on cell phone video. nbc's frances coe has details. >> reporter: it was anything but bliss on this wedding night in philadelphia. guests of two separate wedding parties duking it out. >> i was actually up on the second floor watching. >> it was bedlam. it really was out of hand. >
use. i do not know if it will help his foreign policy, because obama can just come back and say -- that is what i did -- but that is something he will really have to focus on if he wants to do those foreign policy speeches. host: thank you for giving us a ring this morning. you want to show you a little bit from that speech released yesterday. mitt romney is expected to say that he knows the president hopes for a safer and freer and more prosperous middle east -- host: we want to bring in now from "the washington post" a reporter to talk about this speech today. thank you for joining us today. caller: thank you for having me on. host: what does mitt romney have to do in this speech? caller: as was mentioned this morning, this will be late in the game for him to be giving a speech like this. early voting has already started in a number of states. it appears to be an effort by his campaign to continue some of what he talked about in last week's debate, to once again make some clear contrast between himself and the president. more importantly, it is another chance for his campaign
an obama policy that has the economy stuck in neutral. >> they had full charge of the first two years and the policies that this president put into place actually made it worse, including the fact that obamacare is actually, you ask small employers, it's causing them not to hire because of rising health care costs. >> former white house press secretary robert gibbs touched on the the jack welch tweet. >> we wonder what institutions in this country are the perception of institutions are failing because people go on tv and make stuff up. we asked for the evidence and he had none. >> job growth, certainly we're not where we want to be. >> many analysts combed through, attribute decline in unemployment. an increase in part-time work and unable to find full-time jobs and settling for part-time jobs. >> harris: i'm sure they know it's what they add up to underemployment. you had full-time and now part-time a completely different paycheck into your household. we're hearing back and forth with the campaign. the romney campaign's reaction to this. >> keep in mind this deprives the romney campa
more proof that obama's policies had failed. >> we created fewer jobs in september than in august, and fewer jobs in august than in july. and we've lost over 600,000 manufacturing jobs since president obama took office. if not for all the people who had simply dropped out of the labor force, the real unemployment rate would be closer to 11%. >> joining us now is anne kornblut of "the washington post" is and author of "the cracked ceiling," and jonathan allen, politico's senior washington correspondent. first, anne, jon, thank you both for joining us. the drop from 8.1 to 7.8 sounds like a pretty large drop. mitt romney argues it's because of all the people that have stopped looking. but is romney in a bind, because he can no longer use the argument that the unemployment rate hasn't gone below 8% under president obama. >> and he's also in a bind, because there are many experts now who are saying it's not because of the people who have stopped looking. there were some past months where the numbers were revised upwards. so these look like some real improvements. in past months, we've
on president obama's foreign policy and one prominent national poll shows there is a new leader in the race for the white house. plus, the most expensive gas in all the country. a new all-time high. >> in a weeks it was 50 cents up. >> shep: one senator calling for a federal investigation. and an historic mission. >> three, two, one, and lift-off. >> shep: a new life line for astronauts in outer space. it even delivers ice cream. but first from fox this monday night, governor mitt romney says america is facing more threats tonight than when president obama took office. the republican nominee for the presidency accusing our current president of leading from behind, saying and i quote, hope is not a strategy. governor romney went after the president on foreign policy today in a speech at the virginia military institute. >> i believe that if america doesn't lead, others will. others who don't share our interests and our values and the world would grow darker for our friends and for us. america's security and the cause of freedom cannot afford four more years like the last four. >> shep: his ca
.s. president barack obama's foreign policy. the republican presidential candidate said obama's handling of the middle east is increasing the risk of conflict. romney spoke about the situation in iran and syria. he said the region is more dangerous now than when obama took office. he accused the president of employing a strategy of passivity. >> it is our responsibility and the responsibility of the president to use america's greatest power to shape history. not to lead from behind, leaving our destiny at the mercy of events. >> romney also criticized obama for slashing the u.s. defense budget. he promised to roll back the cuts if elected. >>> and a new u.s. poll subjects a big majority of americans who watched the first presidential debate think romney did a better job than obama. gallup surveyed viewers after last wednesday's debate. the poll indicates 72% of respondents believe romney won. 20% favored obama. gallup says the margin of 52 points is the largest it's ever measured in a post-debate poll. approval ratings for romney rose by five percentage points after the debate. he now ti
of the debate as a referendum on obama's policies. he did not level that choice comparison. there was very little discussion, very little pushback as you say on mitt romney's policies. so it seemed like the president just spent his time defending what he did in the past four years without mitt romney ever having to really explain what he would do going forward. the only thing i can think is that the president was told first and foremost play it safe. don't make any big mistakes. don't do anything big that shows up in an attack ad. you can't do that in politics. you can't show up afraid of making a mistake. you can't play it safe. you have to be on the offense and win the day. the one thing i will say for mitt romney and for the republican party is last night mitt romney very aggressively moved to the center. finally seemed to commit to i am a centrist. i support very closely to where obama is. just slight differences. i think it's an acknowledgment that he really can't run on the far right policies that the republican party has been pushing. it took until now with the republican party sort
obama rather than outline a fully formed foreign policy. i think you didn't see that today. in fact, in many ways it's still not clear whether there is much of a difference in a policy sense between barack obama and mitt romney. >> dave wood, our war correspondent extraordinaire there will be talk affidavit war in afghanistan. mitt romney had words about the president's treatment of iraq. let's focus on the afghanistan question. it's the 11-year anniversary of the war, yesterday, i believe. mitt romney had an interesting romneyesque take on afghanistan saying he would pursue a real and successful transition to the afghan security forces by the end of 2014 and goes on to say outlining an exit date is pricely the misstep the president made. let's play that sound if we have it. >> in afghanistan, i will pursue a real and successful transition to afghan security forces by the end of 2014. president obama would have you believe anyone who disagrees with his decisions in afghanistan is arguing for endless war. but the route to war and to potential attacks at home is a politically timed re
in the middle east under president obama. >> more broadly, romney boiled down the president's foreign policy to one of hope. >> i know the president hoped for a more prosperous middle east aligned with us. i share this hope. but hope is not a strategy. we can't support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when words rbt backed up by deeds. when defense spending the being cut. when we have no trade agenda to speak of and our strategy isn't one of partnership but of passive ti. >> on actual foreign policy his specifics were thin amounting to deepening critical cooperation and reaffirming historic ties. susan glasser, your overall assessment of mitt romney? there was no shortage of criticism for the president. what did you make of the prescriptions romney was laying out? >> thanks, alex. you made an important point to say this isn't necessarily a fully formed recipe for what a rom uh any administration would look like. he's seeking to gain a campaign advantage over president obama rather than outline a fully formed foreign policy. i think you didn't see that today. in fact, in
. you have this whole thing clearly the obama policy so does romney seized opportunity? no. he a one off attack. a correct attack i would say on the statement issued by the cairo embassy which was a grabbling apology. he rans away with it. what he should have done is to give a speech to make the argument that the grabbling argument from the cairo embassy was simply one example of the way that obama and the administration have treated the middle east as a way to say we're really nice to you if we try to sweet talk them out of their weapons, if we refuse to support the revolution against the campaign, lead from behind in the area we are going to be liked and everything will be nice. so the problem i have here is obama very vulnerable. remember, this is the one election where he is ahead on the issue of foreign affairs: democrats are usually way behind. why? because usama bin laden is dead. so a week before the eruption of this anti-americanism. the democrats spend a week in charlotte touting the bin laden raid. and a way of saying, you know, we have now fixed the problem. these demonstrati

voters who really care about the environment and the economy. and president obama, his policies really appeal to those voters a lot more. it's interesting that now it's a five-point lead because for about six months, up until a week or two ago, president obama had a narrow one to two-point le lead, so that really shows that president obama is breaking out in some of the key swing states like colorado. >> we shall all be watching tonight to see how things go down there in denver. diana degette, thank you, i appreciate it. >>> up next, painting denver pink. planned parenthood launches an anti romney blitz in colorado. i'm going to talk to the organization's president. >>> plus, bringing sexy back. politico's jonathan allen says biden is number two on the ticket, but number one in their hearts. how the v.p. is winning over seniors. and you can join our conversation on facebook.

. president obama's policies have not worked. as vice president biden admitted, the middle-class has been buried in the last four years. another four years would does barry the middle class even more. during the 2008 debate, then senator obama assured us that he fully understood our problems and that he had the right solution. he promised to make health care more affordable. yeah president obama promise to get our spending under control by cutting the deficits in half. he also was so confident that shortly after taking office, president obama said he would fix the economy in three years or face a one term proposition. today he has broken those promises. now his words have no credibility. midway to the debate, the president realized that he had an president for the past four years and it was his policies and his agenda that failed to produce any of the results that a promised us as a candidate. president obama had not shown the kind of leadership we need. the face crisis today. which requires a steady hand. in a leader focus on the job. a president obama's focus has been on saving his own
you. mitt romney will deliver that major policy speech before noon eastern, but the obama campaign is issuing a preemptive strike with this new tv ad criticizing the republican candidate's past foreign policy faux pas. take a look. >> reckless. amateurish. that's what news media and fellow republicans called mitt romney's gaffe-filled july tour of england, israel, and poland, when our u.s. diplomats were attacked in libya, "the new york times" said romney's knee jerk response showed an extraordinary lack of presidential character. >> the obama campaign sed this will be romney's seventh speech on foreign policy. >>> venezuelan president hugo chavez gets to keep his job for another six years, but his re-election came by the slimmest margin ever in his nearly 14 years of power, winning just 54% of the vote. actor danny glover, a longtime supporter of chavez, was on hand for a day of heavy voter turnout. chavez's opponent, a former state governor, accused him of unfairly using the country's oil wealth to his advantage. chavez told backers the revolution triumphed and reporters were vot
's a little advice. before you debate barack obama on foreign policy, you better finish the debate with yourself. >> woodruff: today the new obama ad pointed to romney's much criticized overseas trip during the summer to argue he lacks experience and clarity on foreign affairs. >> reckless. amateurish. that's what news media and fellow republicans called mitt romney's gaffe-filled july tour of israel and poland. >> woodruff: all of this played out as the president himself was in southern california. he declared the home of the late farm workers' union leader caesar chavez a national landmark. he also held fund-raisers in los angeles and san francisco. his campaign and the democratic national committee raised $181 million in september, the most for any month this year. but money aside, it appears romney's performance in last week's highly watched debate has improved his standing in the race. a new gallup tracking poll found the candidates in a dead heat, each receiving 47% among registered voters. the president had held a five-point advantage before the debate. and the pew research
affairs, mitt romney launched a scathing attack on president obama's policies and leadership overseas. >> it's time to change course in the middle east. it's clear that the risk of conflict in the region is higher now than when the president took office. >> reporter: so far the economy has dominated the campaign debate, but the romney campaign tried to seize on questions and criticisms about the president's handling of last month's attack in libya. it was also a chance to try to reverse the tide after some of romney's perceived missteps including initial response to the libya attack. the republican contender accused the president of passivity over partnership. >> i know the president hopes for a safer, freer, more prosperous middle east allied with us. i share this hope. but hope is not a strategy. >> reporter: the romney campaign was feeling good after his debate performance last week, and there's evidence he got a bounce. the president was stumping for cash, not votes. he continued his california fund-raising swing, which is expected to bring in $10 million over two days. in between
wednesday night in the first of three presidential campaigns. drilling obama in the polls of several battleground states, romney sought to rejuvenate his campaign with an attack on what he called president obama's policies of trickle-down government. >> i am concerned the path we're on has been unsuccessful. the president has a view to one similar when he ran four years ago, that a bigger government spending more, taxing more, regulating more -- a trickle- down government -- would work. that is not the right answer for america. >> president obama was more subdued in his comments, failing to make one mention of romney's infamous 47%, and his background of bain capital. addressing romney's tax plan, obama said romney's effort to cut taxes for the wealthy would be to the gutting of essential government programs. box for 18 months he has been running on this tax plan. five weeks before the election, now he is saying his big, bold idea is, "never mind." the fact is, if you are lowering the rates the way you described, governor, then it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and
americans. wing voters also prefer president obama on healthcare, medicare and foreign policy. not by those huge margins, but that whole bit about connecting with ordinary americans. >> beats me, greta. must be ordinary americans who have jobs. >> greta: maybe that is it. >> i don't know what that means. the other question is, what do you want in a president? do you want a president who will lead us boldly into this century and protect us and put in policies that will bring about prosperity and protect freedom and the constitution or do you want a president who feels my needs, you know, whatever they may be, more? i don't know. i guess we'll see. >> greta: is the fact that there's early voting going on, do you see that as an advantage now to governor romney, at least this week, because he's riding high this week? >> well, yeah. but i think it's probably an overall advantage for the democrats. the power of the incumbency, the money of the incumbency. obama apparently raised $180 million last month. now, i'm sure all these campaign reform liberals are going to be up in arms about that, right?
people. in fact, it's barack obama's policies which actually we don't know what they are, and jen just didn't tell you. i mean, we have talked about key stone pipeline on day one. we're going to create jobs. they're going to have 12 million jobs we're going to create. and then we're going to lower the taxes on small businesses, because we know that's where the job growth comes from, is the small businesses. and the small business tax increases that barack obama promises, because those taxes that he wants put in place, two-thirds of them hit small businesses. and that will kill 700,000 more jobs. and women are the ones who are starting up businesses at a bigger rate. minorities are. you know, in my community, i have a large asian population, all that have small businesses. and these are the people who are going to be taxed. when they need that money for their mortgages, for their kids' education, they don't want to send to to washington, they want to keep that money in virginia to create the next job, take care of their kids and to grow the economy. and that's what we have done in virgi
of president obama's policies. he's not worked across the aisle and we've had unemployment go up as a result of his policies. >> gretchen: although president obama's biggest critique of your candidate is that there simply are not enough details in his plan. so how do you respond to that criticism? >> you heard a lot of details from governor romney last night. in fact, he's been going across the country talking about the romney plan for a stronger middle class and talking about the details. i think people saw that last night. i think what they did not see from president obama was an agenda for a second term should he be reelected. but we know that it would be more of the same. if you like the last four years, you would love the next four years under president obama because health insurance premiums will continue to go up. in fact, they'll go up another $2,500. up to 20 million americans could lose their health insurance as a result of obamacare. the debt would reach $20 trillion and middle class families would be hit with a $4,000 tax increase. that's not going to help us create jobs in our e
be relative to obama's policy of allowing students who are in this country, who came in as children, they'd give them a visa to finish their education, and he has said he would support that. >> uh-huh. >> because frankly, again, the position of republicans has been such that, it's build a fence and throw everybody out. and you have a whole huge population there saying, hey, we're working hard in this country. we're contributing. we love it. our problem is that we have m e made, becoming an american citizen so difficult that for many of these people, it's hard to get, to get through that process. >> so, then, the latino vote, the immigrant vote, is that lost to the gop for a generation? >> no, i don't think so. because you have to remember also, you have a lot of very conservative members of the latino. a lot of catholics. a lot of people feel very strongly about the birth control and social issues and republicans are more in tune there. you haven't permanently alienated that group. >> you were the first and only female governor in the history of the state of new jersey. how proud that yo
gifted when it comes to debating and understanding policy. >> after obama's poor showing in denver democrats are counting on biden the palau -- pull out the win. >> he knows what's going on and he's in touch with the american public. i'm just hopeful that mr. ryan will tell the truth. >> from a's farmer debate coach give his opinion on how the next will go -- romney's former coach gave his opinion. >> we did not go after him so you need to turn up the heat. >> biden says he's ready. foreign and domestic policy issues will both be in play. it's the only vice-presidential debate before the november 6th election. >> another note, the presidential candidates are out campaigning while their running mates are preparing for the debate. romney is spending a third day in florida and the president come as you can see, will be rallying support in los angeles. >> senate hopefuls in virginia will be facing off in a debate tomorrow in richmond. that will be held on october 18th on the virginia tech campus. there are running for webb's open seat. >> tonight, we have a metro service update. work o
. >> i agree -- >> president obama has the right policy. >> rather like his tax policies, the devil in the detail has not emerged yet. we look forward to hearing that. what i want to play you is a clip from "saturday night live" showing president obama onstage in denver. let's watch this. >> excuse me, governor. mr. president? >> i'm sorry, yeah. yeah. what's up? >> mr. president, governor romney has just said that he killed osama bin laden. would you care to respond? >> no, you two go ahead. >> it was a fairly dismal performance, wasn't it. as a result the polls are quite shocking today. this pew poll, there's been a swing from september 12th to 16th, it's gone from 51% to 43% in obama's favor to 49% to 45 in romney's favor. this is catastrophic, isn't it? >> it's not catastrophic. it's a poll. but look, there's no secret, the president didn't have a good debate performance. we have got to get out there, all democrats, all people who support president obama, and aggressively make the case because on the substance of economic policy, we have the better plan. look, all mitt romney wa
at the election may have started out with a referendum on president obama's policies. involves a choice election. two competing alternative visions about the size and shape of role of government in american lives. what governor romney did so effectively in the debate last week was lay out that plausible alternative case in a way and in a forum where many millions of voters were watching him do that. so he made himself a plausible candidate. he laid out an alternative argument. he wasn't just saying the president hasn't done a good job. he was saying the president hasn't done a good job and these are very specific things i will do differently. that has appeal to women, men, you name it. martha: he had his message in a real, relaxed way than he has in the past. there could be argument that also resonated with female voters. let's take a look at something else. you mentioned this look at moderate voters in a piece that you wrote. and here's the moderate voter position. 49 for president obama. 39 for governor romney. you make an interesting point about this. >> yeah. i just find it an absolutely fas
living proof that obama's policies do not work. i want to change. i consider myself a conservative. for years, i will be 41 tomorrow. i do not know if i republican or democrat. i have never really educated myself on that, but i agree with a lot of what romney says. more so if anything the message he was trying to get across less nine. i am sorry that he interrupted the commentators as much as he did but i am the same way when i get worked up about things that i believe in. i believe he wants to restore this country and undo a lot of the policies that keeps small business owners from going back into business. i had a small paving and grading business here in oregon. the area has been a pretty economically depressed area since 1980. it does not seem like much of anything you do in this region -- it is hard to make a profit in this area so i ended up going to work for another contractor and i could only average since obama got elected -- whether or not it was his policies or not, i learned having a business that every four years typically business would slow down because it is an elec
critique of president obama's failed policies that the president was unable to respond to. and today and since then the obama campaign they remind me a little bit of a 7-year-old losing a checker game instead of being frustrated at the outcome they sweep the board off the table. the fact is if president obama is re-elected as governor romney pulled out we are going to have continued chronically high unemployment and we are going to have continued massive staff instead of moving toward a budget. healthcare premium also continue to rise 20 million americans will lose their employer based health insurance on obama care and rake 716 billion from medicare. governor romney will have a different approach that will move this country in the right direction. that's what they are frustrated about, george. >> we will preview the vice presidential debate. what should we hear from joe biden? we will all be watching that this thursday. >> time for the first degree weather update with maria molina. >> hi, good morning. good to see you. we are dealing with chilly temperatures across a big chunk of th
policy than barack obama, saying obama has been weak. this is obviously a very arguable point. what would you say to that? >> i think the most interesting thing about governor romney is not just this speech but his entire foreign policy approach, is the complete absence of specifics and we even heard that from former senator coleman there so he's upset about the situation in syria. i didn't hear governor romney advocate that we intervene in syria. i happen to think that would be a mistake. in iran, all he called for was the exact sanctions that president obama is implementing. look, the president has had a very strong record. you pointed out many of the aspects of that. certainly the death of osama bin laden is the most important, but it's not just that. we've contained al qaeda by being aggressive, but at the same time, we've worked with the rest of the world to enforce sanctions on iran and yes, we are working with turkey and all those other countries, trying to deal with the situation in syria. i think the mistake governor romney makes is to assume that there's some magic wand to fix a
foreign-policy and the broader chrism tough criticism of an obama foreign-policy. >> i think what you have seen is he tends to speak, especially about foreign policy, and really be vague sending generalities. we have some very specific things happening in libya. u.s. ambassador and three other americans were murdered. the investigation that the obama administration is placing some much importance on has not really started. there are a lot of specific things that run the kentuck about three failures on the part of the administration. so far he simply has not done. >> never too late to talk with the economy and what's going on. consumer confidence continues to plummet. can you take advantage of it at this point? can the president cover his tracks? >> he will try to. i kind of very much agree with the point about specifics. i think mitt romney looked at it in a big way. a smart guy who studies the numbers. but really you have to bring it home to voters with and a dozen examples. how often is mitt romney on the campaign trail? telling a story and what happened to have mo to her. occasionally h
